Cheating can be defined as being emotionally or sexually unfaithful to your partner who you are in a closed relationship with. Having intimate physical or emotional contact with another person is typically considered cheating. This debate is going to be whether cheating should be criminalized or not.
On the one hand, cheating is bad. Firstly, it damages a personís mental health, creating trust issues and insecurities, because it implies lying. Sometimes, the cheaters can lie both ......... the person who theyíre married to and the mistress, which makes it even worse and it should be penalized. Another argument is represented by the criminal records nobody wants to ever have. If cheating is criminalized, people would find it complicated and not worth it at all to cheat on that person because it would get them to the court.
On the other hand, cheating canít be compared to a crime, so it wouldnít make any sense to criminalize it. It is a personal, emotional problem that should not be mixed up with more important issues. As long as it does not provoke some individualís death, it should be staying out of court. Secondly, there are people who are able to give second chances to their partners who had mistaken.  Everyone should decide for themselves what is going to happen after getting cheated on, and statistically a lot of people would rather get over it than going in court.
All being said, there are lots of arguments for and against that the government should take into account when deciding to criminalize a very touchy subject, in this case, cheating.
